It's no secret that KRISTEENYOUNG (comprised of singer-songwriter/piano marauder Kristeen Young and her drummer sidekick "Baby" Jef White) is one of my favorite acts of all time -- and I say that after discovering her only six months ago.
Young's songs are strident, discordant, disheartening and brutally melodic all at once (trust me -- it's possible) and utterly unlike anything anyone else is putting out today. She's toured with Morrissey, sang backup for David Bowie and dueted with Fall Out Boy's Patrick Stump and on Thursday, May 20 at 8pm she'll be performing at NYC's Santos Party House, 96 Lafayette Street. Come get converted and pray at the altar of KRISTEENYOUNG with me -- I promise you won't regret it (and if you do, I'll be there and you can [try to] kick my ass but I can pretty much guarantee you'll be too busy getting hyno-mesmerized by the show).
